Girl Scout Cookie Time!!!!

It's cookie time!!

Note -- if this post looks a little familiar it's because it's almost identical to the one I posted just over a year ago (I'm a little late this year). If you have questions, let me know! Thanks, Tami

Megan is selling Girl Scout cookies as part of Brownie Troop 470, part of the Riverland council... and you can purchase this classic favorite for yourself or for our soldiers (part of Cookies for Iraq, see more info below).

In addition to raising funds for her Brownie troop, a portion of each box sold also goes directly into a fund for Megan going to camp. Last year this meant she was able to go to the "Sophisicated Ladies" camp at Camp Ehawee near La Crosse (it was Sunday thru Wednesday and she loved it!)
Details are below. Contact us with any questions ...
